One of Murray State's leading administrators is stepping down and returning to his previous position.

Dr. Tim Todd has served as interim provost and vice president of academic affairs since July, 2015 when Jay Morgan took a position with the Kentucky Council on Postsecondary Education.

Murray State Faculty Regent Dr. Jack Rose will chair the new Provost Search Committee which will meet for the first time this month. The committee is in charge of finding a new Provost and Vice-President of Academic Affairs to replace Dr. Bonnie Higginson.
